's the promise we need to keep. that's the change we need right now. >> if president obama has anything to say about it, we will remain our brother's keeper for the next four years. it is not only the way things ought to be, it's the way things are. let me go back into the trash can here and tell a story about rush limbaugh. oh, let's get it correctly. not upside down, of course. this was hot 20 years ago. and since then, they got the microphone. the telecommunications bill came down, and now you can have 500 people across the country saying the same things rush limbaugh says every day. how come they didn't win the presidency? how come they don't own the senate? why did they have to gerrymander all these districts to have to hang on to the house? and why in our broadcast tonight are we talking about the electoral college being shifted in several states because this guy has been so successful. no question about it, very talented, good businessman. but idealogically, two-in-one show, rush. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, is the united states a center-
the battle for voting rights isn't over. here's the president. >> obama: our journey is not complete a citizen is not forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. >> michael: now that he has been inaugurated, do you think voters going to the ballot is at risk. >> i think it is. the republicans are a minority party. they got the minority in the presidential and senate and over all house races they're not working with the demographic roots that are growing in this country, which are largely latinos. and it will make it impossible for them to break into that voting block. the only way they can win is by changing the rules. i know i can cite some great philosophers, but gary trudeau has been citing the politics that we'll just change the election by changes the votes and you can see it in dunes bury. there was no photo i.d. that was the way to diminish the vote of young people and african-americans and other minorities. what it did was so enrage the african-american community they got out and voted. they said we're not going to take this and they came out and the vote was good

pressure for president obama has come right out of california. california is going to play a role in this absolutely. there's no question. >> scott, i have a question. >> i would add if you look at -- if you look at some of the congressional races in this past election where you have ami berra, first generation indian-american knocking off dan lungren. and raul ruiz in the coachella valley. both of those elections sent a strong signal where california is on this issue. >> scott, do you think the first bill will come from the senate or the house? who's going to act first? >> well, at this point i think the house is being very cautious and in some ways they're saying, you know, why don't you go first and see what you can get through? and i think that they don't want to stick their necks out too far. but what's been happening in the house in the last week or two with the sandy relief passing and also the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, it really, those things had more democratic votes than republicans, and a lot of sensitive, you know, that happens to john boehner too many times his
when it comes to the right to bear arms and mr. obama says that he is protecting other rights. take a look: >> president barack obama: that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness, fundamental rights that were denied to college students at virginia tech. and high school students at columbine and elementary school students in newtown. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> chris: question: can you support a measure that would limit the size of these high-capacity clips that hold 30 rounds or 100 rounds? can you support a universal background check? >> you know, let's see what they come up with in terms of a specific proposal -- specific proposals. certainly, at newtown, what an incredible tragedy for every family involved. for that community. i have got a 2nd grade son and i have grandchildren about that age, and it was a terrible thing, those families, frankly, will never recover from. but, let's talk about changes that would have done something about that. so far, i don't see that. you know, connecticut is the -- one of the hardest

"politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, krischris, and thank you for tuning in. we're covering this amazing, historic day in washington. the inauguration of barack obama as our president. right now, the president and the vice president are watching the inaugural parade with groups from all over the country going by and standing in front of the white house. just moments ago, the airmen passed by and got a standing ovation. earlier today, the president gave his second inaugural address, a stirring, passionate call for equality and fairness. forging a more perfect union and helping the country live up to the meaning of its creed. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all of those men and women, sung and unsung, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone. to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every sou

right now, the work that is being done in democratic politics right now, led by president obama at the start of his second term is this effort to turn what has been long-standing majority support for liberal policies into appreciation that those policies aren't just individual free-floating tech no ratically good ideas that we agree on, those policies come from a worldview and a problem-solving approach that is in fact the governing philosophy of this country. we're a liberal country. we are not a center-right country the way the right always wants to tell us. we are a country where liberal policies are widely popular and, frankly, at the national level we express that right now by mostly voting for democrats. by a lot. that's the portrait of the country that the president was painting this week in his second inaugural, in tying this list of what get described as liberal policies to fundamental centrist, widely acknowledged, basically universal american values. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with
point, right? as with the other issues that president obama name-checked so specifically in his inaugural address this week, the things that got his speech branded as so liberal this week, what president obama was alluding to there at the end by bringing up gun violence in his inaugural address is a set of policies that he and vice president biden have proposed for dealing with gun policies. and these policies get labeled liberal. but it turns out they are very popular. they are very, very, very widely popular. gallup just did a national poll on the whole list of proposal as that president obama and vice president biden have put forward on gun violence. bang high-capacity ammo clips. that gets majority support in this country. 54%. reinstating and strengthening the assault weapons ban we had for ten years that expired back in '04. majority support. look at that. 60% of the country wants that. making it so only the military and law enforcement can have so-called cop killer bullets, those armor-piercing bullets. 67% of the country supports that. and the numbers get higher from the
: when i was running for state senate. >> that's right, i was. >> president barack obama: we go back a ways. >> i have never seen you lose. >> it has to remind you, u.s. have a highlight reel of this -- >> the opposite. but, reporters do talk a big game, in the locker room, and i'm going to ask him, i'm going to say this, when i was the deputy press secretary i used to be the eyes and ears for the press secretary and i would be with the reporters all the time on the press plane and everywhere and listening to them, hearing what they would say and one i remember, who he could not stand the way president bush said, and god bless america. it drove him crazy and he'd mock him all the time and i never forgot that. he's a major anchor now and you know who you are... >> does his name rhyme with brian williams? >> does not. >> does his name rhyme... >> i'm not playing that game. president bush linked them and what happened to the reporters in the presence of president obama happened to me. i met him in '06 and sat across the table from him at the gridiron dinner, we laughed for hours and two
need to work out the details. here on capitol hill is the tricky part. >> that is right. tracie potts in washington. tracie, thank you. president obama and ril ri clinton were interviewed. >> we had such agreement on what needed to be done for our country. >> made for tough debates, by the way. >> it did. >> we could never figure out what we differed on. hillary mentioned part of our bond is we've been through a lot of the same stuff and part of being through the same stuff is getting whacked around in political campaigns. being criticized in the press. we've both built some pretty thick skin. by the time hillary joined the administration i felt very confident and comfortable in our working relationship. i think what did evolve was a friendship as opposed to just professional relationship. >>> egyptians in three suez canal provinces are under a state of emergency this morning and will be subject to a curfew tonight. egypt's president muhammad delivered the angry edict. he hopes to prevent them from spinning out of control. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is with us. >> reporter: a state of emer
, and they're going to work those out internally over the next two years, and i think obama is right, that until they get to a place where a republican can have a constructive relationship with obama and not pay a political price for it, then no republicans are going to have constructive relationships with them because, you know, politicians are just -- are very self-serving and self-interested folks. that's how they got to where they are, and there has to be somebody who has to break the curse. there has to be a politician, a republican, who steps forward, works with obama on something, maybe it will be guns, maybe it will be immigration, we'll find out who works with him, who infuriates the base, infuriates rush limbaugh and glenn beck if he's still around out there, and survives and actually advances. as soon as that happens, then it shows an alternative path to power for republicans, and that will enable obama to then start having relationships again. >> he is still out there. i heard him this morning. professor peterson, let me play for you an exchange when david gregory and sen
, but we didn't do it right. >> she talked like somebody in the arena. those are the people who get the credit. i also think the big question for 2016 is who can carry -- who can make the obama coalition the democratic coalition. and if you look at those numbers, the washington post poll, she's high favorability among african-americans, among women, among hispanics, and lower educated voetders. >> do you think she will run the way the george w. bush's father did after a third term fn reagan? >> no. >> her ego -- >> right. but in terms of -- i think that's right. but in terms of the attachment and the enthusiasm of the base of the democratic voters, she has that. >> we're going to jump on it. i think she historically is to the left of jackson, somewhere around humphrey. right in the middle of the democratic party historically. she said we're the indispensable country. none of this pulling back, come home america. >> yes. tough, but one other point. you know what she did? she did concede we made mistax but she also when tested by ron johnson most notably, she did not back down. the li
like. is obama the right man? do you like what you see for maybe the second term obama already? >> i love the man. i voted for him originally. i actually went to a meeting with 18 of the top executives, the guys that started google. and in the meeting, everybody was a big supporter. i said, mr. president, i love your heart. i absolutely believe in your intelligence. i know you care. i voted for you the first time but i said i would love to know how it's going to be different when there's such demonization going on. i think that's the significant problem in our country. it's not one person. we used to be able to have a dialogue. today it's you're right, you're wrong. that process happens in the gun debate, it's happening everywhere in this country. i had a conversation with him and said, listen, if you think the solution that you're telling me you're going to do in your next term is you're going to raise taxes on the wealthy, i'm more than willing to pay that. i'm supportive of that. but that will raise $80 billion. even less now because they cut it from 250 as the cutoff. that will r

obama, "the bridge," talks about how he grew out of the civil rights movement, led by martin luther king. you write in the book, david, that race has been at the core of president obama's story. but it's not been in the foreground of his presidency. >> that's true. he's gotten some criticism for that from some bloack leaders. he views his presence in the white house is essential. and everything he can do, whether it's improving the economy or keeping the united states safe, improves the lives of all americans. he's very wary of being the president of black america. he's insistent on being the president of the united states. and sometimes, that's caused him difficulty with certain black leaders. cornell west is one. there's others. >> and you said the president blames his americanism. what did you mean by that? >> president obama is very clear, he has the opportunity to represent all of america. he realizes that that history helps him lead the entire country. and so, he's claimed his america is not simply as black america. >> i was just going to say. this is also the 150th anniversary her

correspondent and this is definitely not the result that the obama administration wanted. >> that's right, a brushback for the president, he was out a few moments ago announcing his new chief of staff at the white house, dennis mcdo mcdoneough, but as you lay ow the facts, what the general republicans did last year when he used the recess appointment authority, they were making sure that the senate was in pro forma session so that it technically did not go into recess, and at the time republicans said it was an abuse of executive power and white house insisted no, no, no, the senate is in fact in recess at that time. and the suit that was brought, that caused all of this was a man in washington state, noel canning, who bottles and distributes soft drinks, nlrb came into washington state and i had he had to enter into collective bargaining with unions in washington state and he basically said the nlrb does not have the power because these folks were put on the board improperly and republicans like senator roger wicker told fox news radio they think it's an important ruling by the court. ta
and weeks perhaps of political division and street fighting. lester? >> all right, ayman, thank you. >>> in this country more peaceful scenes as large numbers of people took to the streets in washington and other cities today to keep the spotlight on gun violence and to back the obama administration's push for stricter gun laws. gun rights supporters are finding ways to demonstrate their own passions over the issue. nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker joins us now with more. kristen? >> reporter: lester, good evening. today's rally was organized by advocacy groups, one million moms for gun control. it was a day filled with emotion but also reality. the nation is still sharply divided when it comes to guns. a ground swell of support for stiffer gun laws and thousands rallied in washington to call for change in the wake of the newtown shooting, holding signs bearing the names of those lost and speaking their minds. >> no more. it's time to do something about it. >> we can and must free our nation of this scourge of gun violence. >> reporter: among the crowds mothers who
